Lantern Festival


It is once again a great Friday evening spent. We left work at about 6.30 to make it to Water Lily Cafe in Puchong on the same building as Binary University College for dinner. The food was ok but the service is shit. So, I would not return there again but having my friends justified for that.

Later on, we headed for the Lantern Festival Show at Bukit Jalil Stadium. We spent a brief 20 minutes in there after paying a well worth it cover charge of RM5.00. Some of the main attractions were the local landmarks like the Shah Alam mosque and KL Twin Towers which was made of glass and cloth and illuminated.

I think seeing the dragon made out of chinaware paid off the cover charge. It was a good estimated over 100 metres long. The puzzling thing is that it is all tied together with strings.

We spend most of the time looking through the cool displays and checking out the materials it was made of. As I pass it everyday, I always assume that all of it is made of cloth but after having a good look, I realize that there are no boundaries of what one can use to make lanterns. Some of the cool materials used are glass bottles, umbrellas and chinaware. Well, check out the cool pics from that festival.

The festival is ending this month and I encourage everyone to visit. The remaining three of us headed down to Hartamas for a drink later on at Christos. I enjoyed the time there because it was a small and comfortable group.

Well, that’s all for now. I am working on a KFC moment picture that I will posting up on my next post.

Till then, take care….
